Sixteen years ago, Wendy Wustenberg’s daughter, Lauren, and her mother, the late Ruth Wiberg, created a University of Minnesota Extension 4-H project using wool from rare Leicester Longwool sheep the family raises at Windswept Hill Farm, in Farmington, Minn. The first round of wool angels were Lauren’s 4-H demonstration project for the Dakota County Fair when she was 10 years old.

It’s a question many spectators at a show wonder. For Roseau County 4-H member, Alexa Kihle, showing livestock is a family affair. Going all the way back to the 1940s, when her great-grandmother showed cattle with 4-H in Nebraska.
